Check Your Chassis

Do your brakes feel a little squishy, or do you finally want to set up your suspension for your weight? MC Garage will teach you the ins and outs of your chassis, including your tires, suspension, and brakes.

Have You Inspected Your Drivetrain Lately?

More than just your chain, belt, or shaft, your motorcycle’s drivetrain also includes your transmission and clutch. Is your clutch operated with a cable or by hydraulics? What about your chain and sprockets, are your links starting to lock up? Maybe your chain just needs to be lubed more regularly, an important skill to master for any motorcycle mechanic.

Being A Better Mechanic And Rider

You’re keeping your bike in great shape, but what about yourself? Are you prepared for the what-ifs? What if you get stranded out on the road, what tools should you keep on your bike? What if you want to go camping, what are the bare necessities to pack? What if nature gave you short legs, what do you need to do to lower your bike to feel more comfortable with it? So don’t worry, MC Garage has you covered for the various aspects of your motorcycling life.
